I recently discovered a fantastic blog, Tokyo Green Space, which examines ways that biodiversity and urban form coexist in Tokyo. It inspired me to take a closer look at the dialogue between nature and urban design in my own backyard.

On a lunch time bike ride to the Civic Center, I made these pictures of the ground floor garden inside Wright’s famous architectural commission.

  1. Nice shots. I really like this building.
    I took almost the exact same photos the day I went to get my wedding certificate.

  2. hi lee. thanks for stopping by! i’m appreciating this building more and more every day. i was there for wedding-related business too, as the witness for some friends’ small ceremony.

  3. I’m in San Diego now but originally from Northern California and your blog often gives me a longing to be back in the Bay Area. Keep up the good work.
